It is a matter of budgeting the time.  Example, I just peeked at email
when I SHOULD be on my way to the park to watch a Little League baseball
game staring a 7 year old that is important to me.  Familly and employment
require great amounts of my time. I am trying to get some of my work time
devoted to linux time.

I suppose I will have a close look at what is going on and see if there is

Mother's Day and all that, you know.
